heat wave!

Out the back window, the sunrise looked deceptively dull. There were no clouds to be seen rather a simple peach glow to the horizon. I bundled up, with yesterday’s near frostbite experience (or so it seemed) weighing heavily on my mind.


As soon as I stepped out, I knew I had been mistaken. The 20º F felt balmy and there were the most beautiful clouds sitting atop Green Mountain, waiting to show off a spectacular pink riot.

The colors toward sunrise were VERY-lightly pastel and the most interesting sight was all of the sledding footprints and the texture of the snow-surface. I got right down in the snow on my hands and knees to take a few pictures. Never once did I feel cold except for my hands and a brief protest over putting the mittens back on!


Just as promised, the sky lit up over Green Mountain...

I visited Colorado for the first time about a year ago. I knew I would love it, and I did. You have such a beautiful view. I envy you. I live in Boston and it is nice in other ways but seriously lacks mountains.
